Hiroshima Prefecture, in Japan's Chugoku region, offers diverse scenic attractions throughout its more than 100 islands in the Seto Inland Sea and the Chugoku Mountains. Hiroshima's two World Heritage sites are the A-Bomb Dome, a 15-minute walk from the hotel, and the historic Miyajima Itsukushima shrine.

The hotel is a three-minute walk from the Hatchobori train station, with four streetcar lines spreading in all directions. Hiroshima City has the biggest streetcar network in Japan, providing a good way to discover the area’s attractions, including spots such as Hiroshima Castle.
